Massachusetts’ anti-fossil-fuel policies are the primary reason why the state has relied on natural gas imports from a Russian oil company the Department of State sanctioned during the Obama-era.
Officials in Massachusetts and neighboring New Hampshire blocked financing in 2016 for the $3 billion Access Northeast Pipeline, which would have helped the state weather an energy crunch this winter. The state’s decision to rely principally on green energy hiked gas prices and forced it turn to Russian oil imports.
Environmentalist groups like 350.org and Greenpeace are organizing online campaigns to oppose every new coal, oil, and natural-gas project in the country. Greenpeace, for one, has etched out the position that the only good fossil fuels are the ones that are left in the ground. The Sierra Club, meanwhile, claims the U.S. is ready for 100 percent green energy.
“Half of Britain’s imports of liquefied natural gas so far this year have come from Russia, illustrating how UK households have started sending more money to Moscow after Vladimir Putin made boosting exports of the super-cooled fuel a priority.”

Thank you for this Post that does shed light on motivations that are clearly not about Best Science or Public Interest, but $$$$
Contrary to what we may have thought initially about Enviros, we’ve since learned they’re not tree but turbine huggers. It’s counterintuitive their wind shilling, kill birds to save them. So why are NGOs universally and vocally leaning toward that which harms wildlife and habitat?
NGOs, usual suspects Sierra et al, have the attention of Congress that wants to understand why Putin’s giving them money.

“ongoing investigations into allegations of Russian interference in , the connection between Vladimir Putin’s government and U.S. environmental groups”
“ALARMIST ARMAGEDDONIST FACTOIDS” is the internal language used by Greenpeace to promote the green agenda that allegedly is fueled and funded by Russia.
Could Russia be using NGOs to Keep it in the Ground if it’s fossil...but with their larger agenda to weaken the security of the U.S. energy supply? If Putin is funding NGOs pitching renewables in the US, it’s not because of his social conscience.
No wind has been installed in Russia since 2013.
